    Flex 3 Won't Run

    benrigby
      Hi - When I try to run a project I get a popup error message that says "There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive" with buttons: Cancel, Try Again, Continue. All of which, when clicked, bring the popup up again - infinite loop.... No love. Can't do anything with the software.

          Hi,

          Can you please provide more details about the system environment and, how you are launching the project?

          Does this happen for all apps or for a specific apps?

          Thanks,

            Sure. I'm on Vista Business.
            Pentium 4 3GHz
            2046mb ram

            I get the error when I do just about anything in Flex. For example, I boot up the app, it loads the start page, I click "Full tutorial" link for "Create a Simple RIA" and I get the error. I then have to force quit the app before I can do anything again.

            So, I start it back up and attempt to create a new project, which I do - just using the minimum default template. It lets me create the project shell. When I try to compile, I get the same error.

              What is the version of Flex builder that you are using? Have tried reinstalling the flex builder?

                it's: flexbuilder3_b3_win_sa_121207
                yes, i tried uninstalling and re-installing.
                now, i've just uninstalled again and am going to try the eclipse plugin version.

                  Just got the same error with the plugin -
                  This time it started the Launch process - and spit the error as it said "Performing pre-launch check"

                    Just installed on my laptop (using the same installer file), also running Vista Business and it works fine. So, there's just some conflict on this desktop machine (which is a bummer since it's my development box).

                      Do you have a different version of JVM on the desktop machine? Can you try installing to a different location on that machine?

                      Thanks,

                        I uninstalled a version of JVM that I had on the machine. Uninstalled Flex. Then reinstalled Flex into a different directory, but got the same error.

                        I also got what looks like some sort of debugging window. I put a screenshot up at: www.dfilm.com/misc/flexerror.gif and a screenshot of the error up at: www.dfilm.com/misc/flexerrss.jpg
